About this book

This study traces the resurgence of a conservative suffrage leadership, questions the inevitability of the narrow franchise granted to women in 1918, and suggests that something important was lost, especially to the Labour party and to feminism, when a broad vision of democracy and patriotism became a casualty of war, self-interest and jingoism.

About the authors

JO VELLACOTT is an independent historian, formerly Assistant Professor of Women's Studies at the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.

Reviews

'This is an excellent, innovative study that students will find invaluable as they progress beyond 1914 in their consideration of women and the franchise.' - Margaret Brown, The Historical Association

'Pacifists, Patriots and the Vote offers fresh and insightful answers to questions about the British women's movement during the Great War that Jo Vellacott was instrumental in reopening exactly thirty years ago.' - Marc Calvini-Lefebvre, Reviews in History
